Weekly Message for April 8, 2019

Hello Wakelon Families!  This is Ms. Cooper with the weekly message.  I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable Spring Break!


Parent Survey: Parents, WCPSS and Panorama Education have partnered to conduct a Parent Survey. The Survey will give us valuable data on how we can continue to engage parents and the community and improve the ways we engage with parents at Wakelon Elementary.  Many of you received an email with the survey link. Please check your email inbox or junk/spam folders for the Survey link. Your child will also be bringing home a form today with the survey link. We hope to have 30% of our families complete the survey. If the school reaches our goal the entire school will receive ice cream! This is your opportunity to let us know how we are doing and what we can improve on so that your child is receiving nothing but the best.


Morning Arrival:  If you drop your child off after 9:15, you must come inside and sign him/her in.  You can not send your child in alone.  Students are not allowed to sign themselves into school.


Fun Run:  Parents we will be holding our Annual Spring Fun Run on Friday, April 12.  The cost for students to participate is $5.  Please make sure you child turns in his/her money by Thursday. Come out and join us for the fun on Friday!


Talent Show: Please save the date: On May 24 we will hold our first Student Talent Show.  The time is 6:00-7:00 and the cost is $3 for all adults and non-Wakelon students.  Auditions will begin before Spring Break.  Please encourage your child to participate and show off their talent! 


Autism Awareness Week:  Parents a flyer was sent home today regarding our celebration of Autism Awareness Week.  Each day a student will be allowed to dress differently to show their support for our friends with Autism.  See our website for more information.
